Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren — Final Impressions

Come, my friends, ‘Tis not too late to seek a new­er world. Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! was nev­er an ani­me that I held to a very high stan­dard. Sure, the ani­ma­tion is breath­tak­ing, the char­ac­ters are wacky and lov­able, and I always found each episode to be an over­all enjoy­able expe­ri­ence, but I nev­er […]

Takanashi Rikka Kai: Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Movie

Dark Flame Mas­ter’s Secrets of Kiss­ing 101” O3O You’d think see­ing a Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! movie would be some­what of a hyper expe­ri­ence. And yet there isn’t real­ly any­thing much to say about this film. I mean, aside from the real­ly amus­ing intro­duc­tion scene with Rikka’s “dream wed­ding”, and of course, the last […]

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren 06 — WE MAKE PROGRESS!

ARRDGS­GDHFS­DRADSvdVVHD­VS! Alright, a friend spoiled me that some­thing “awe­some and fan­tas­tic” would hap­pened in this week’s episode, so I was already kind of expect­ing some­thing along the lines of a kiss between Yuu­ta and Rik­ka just by tak­ing a wild guess. Still, it was quite a pleas­ant sur­prise regard­less because the large buildup and I […]

Thoughts/Analysis on Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren so far (~Episode 05)

Let the cheek-pinch­ing com­mence! I got­ta say, if there’s any­thing keep­ing me from going insane from my ter­ri­ble, ter­ri­ble Pre-Cal­cu­lus class, it’s watch­ing the con­tin­u­a­tion of our ADHD-filled adven­tures with the “The Sum­mer of Far East Mag­ic Nap Club” when­ev­er I head home every week. Not only is it nice when you’re watch­ing a bunch […]

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren 01

Jao Shin­gan awak­ens once again! Like its first sea­son, I’m treat­ing Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! Ren as a nice break from the more seri­ous stuff I’ll be watching/reading this sea­son. That isn’t to say I was­n’t emo­tion­al­ly invest­ed in the first sea­son, but at its heart I think Chuu2 is gen­er­al­ly sup­posed to be […]

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Extra Episode

I missed dat ass. I final­ly got around to watch­ing the Chuu2 OVA. I must say, I’ve real­ly missed the antics of these delu­sion­al char­ac­ters. Chuu2 was prob­a­bly my per­son­al favorite ani­me of the Fall 2012 sea­son. And Rik­ka is as adork­able as ever.

Characters of 2012 (Happy New Years!)

Now that 2013 has begun, it’s time for me to talk about my favorite aspect of ani­me: the char­ac­ters, specif­i­cal­ly ones from 2012. I can’t stress this enough. The qual­i­ty of sto­ry­telling in an ani­me and its orig­i­nal­i­ty are cru­cial aspects in mak­ing an ani­me mem­o­rable, but I always believed that whether or not a […]

Anime of 2012

Image Cred­it: wamochi It’s time to get down to busi­ness in pick­ing some nee­dles out of a haystack. Over­all, I’d say that this was a pret­ty weak year in terms of ani­me, but that isn’t to say there weren’t a hand­ful of series that man­aged to stick out, in both a good and a bad […]
